in my awaken dreams

I want wings to fly

where night never falls

I’ll leap from that cliff

reawakening of life

no more room for ashes

in my country of thoughts

where beauty unfolds

from all it has known

with no end in sight

my flight in transparency

moulding my untold wishes

like a butterfly I’ll soar

    ya we should all fly at a moment … fly away from reality

  28. I too want wings to fly. Not the waxy kind of course, I’ve had those already. Kansas alluded to it in the olden days but Iron Maiden did it definitively.

    Your imagery is beautiful and combined with the picture, even more evocative. Plus the food pictures in your recent entries are just smashing!
